Hello from SA Australia

Post by Katrina on Wed May 01, 2013 1:36 am

Hello Everyone. 
My name is Katrina I live in South Australia. Imam a stay at home mum to one daughter who is 3.5yrs. I have been reading and learning from you all and looking at your amazing photos. I have wanted to learn to face paint for ages and have now decided to do it. I'm hoping to get some paints soon. I have tried liquid face paint but I didn't like it at all. 
I have hinted to my wonderful other half that he could get me some for mothers day next week. Very Happy

I can't see myself doing face paint as a profession. I think I'll just do it as something fun to do. I'm not good at art I failed art big time in high school. Lol. 

My daughter has asked me to paint her face like a puppy when I get my paints. :-D

Dear Katrina:
Welcome to the Forum!
I failed grade 13 art.
I have been trained as a Master Portrait Artist. I can do oil portraits. My high school art teacher failed me because he told me, "Young lady, you have the most disturbing lack of imagination I have ever seen."
It has taken me a long time to let those words go.
I did not want to paint the IDEA of the vase, I wanted to paint a picture of the vase, the transparency, the highlights, the background. That was grounds for failure.
Do not pay any attention to art teachers in high school. Some of the best face painters I have ever seen cannot paint realistically.
Play in the face paints. Enjoy them.
I use Wolfe White and Wolfe Black for line work, and TAG, Kryolan, FAB, MAC, Diamond F/X, Snazaroo, and Ben Nye. Find out which ones work for you.

Happy Painting!

Thank you for the welcome Very Happy

Fesspenter. I wasn't worried about failing art as it wasn't something I like anyway at the time. Very Happy.

Sammie star creation. Yes I'm hoping to order from them I found them out by the face painter at my local bunnings store.

Hi Katrina, I second the suggestion of shopping at facepaint for everybody, Angela is so so helpful, she helped me when I was first starting and had no idea how to mix the paint to the right consistency Smile I've not used liquids, but totally recommend tag cakes.
The people that make Tag live in Nairne and run workshops sometimes for like $26, I've only been to one but man it improved my painting soooo much.
Nice to see a fellow south Aussie on here!
